Preparations are well underway in the United States ahead of the hosting of the 2028 World Cup. However, before the focus turns to the major tournament, the USA will be looking to build momentum ahead of the resumption of the CONCACAF Nations League next month. The USA will be among the favorites in the betting to win the competition, having won the previous edition in the summer.
USA were excellent across the previous edition of the Nations League, landing a 3-0 win over Mexico, before defeating Canada 2-0 in the final. However, their form has taken a hit since that win, as they were beaten by Panama in the Gold Cup semi-finals. But, they have won each of their last two, including a 4-0 home win over Oman.
It is a busy period on the schedule for Ghana, as the African nation will be gearing up for the start of World Cup qualification next month, before the Africa Cup of Nations gets underway early in 2024. Ghana comes into this clash in fine recent form, as they have won each of their last two international matches.
Their most recent success was a 3-1 home win over Liberia in September. However, the African nation has a fine overall record in this fixture, as they have won four of the previous six. But, they have lost each of their two. The most recent of those was a 2-1 defeat on American soil in July 2017.
USA vs Ghana Prediction
This should be a high-quality showdown between two talented nations. However, the USA will have home field advantage, and they will be boosted by the fact that they have won each of their last two against Ghana.
